Residential Permit Amnesty Month

Posted on March 1, 2019


During the entire month of March, we’re waiving penalties for homeowners who come forward to resolve any building, electrical, plumbing or mechanical construction or repair work done to their homes without permits. Work done on your home without obtaining permits and inspections is unlawful–and it’s also unsafe. Homeowners who take advantage of this temporary amnesty program will pay normal permit and applicable plan review fees to permit and legalize any unpermitted work. Stop by City Hall for help–there’s no judgment!
